Meanwhile, Hundreds of Hurricane Dorian survivors have fled the Bahamas as thousands more anxiously await evacuation from the devastated islands. With aid efforts under way, many survivors complained of “chaotic” and slow evacuations.

Bahamian Prime Minister Hubert Minnis, speaking to survivors at the port in Abaco, called for calm and promised more free transport.

Even though Helicopters, planes and boats were deployed they couldn’t do much due to severe flooding.

According to the UN, at least 70,000 Bahamians are in need of immediate humanitarian relief after their homes were destroyed by the hurricane. The islands have a population of about 400,000.

The PM and his government have been criticised for the speed of their response to the humanitarian crisis.
